Microsoft has resolved a known issue triggering errors and temporarily causing the taskbar and desktop to disappear on Windows 10 systems.

The company also linked the same issue with instances where the users' devices would stop responding to input and freeze.

"You might experience an error in which the desktop or taskbar might momentarily disappear, or your device might become unresponsive," Microsoft explains on the Windows health dashboard.

The list of affected Windows platforms includes the following client releases: Windows 10 version 20H2, Windows 10 version 21H1, Windows 10 version 21H2, and Windows 10 version 22H2.

Microsoft suggests restarting the affected devices to work around the disappearing desktop or taskbar and system freeze issues.
